Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results. ATOMIC HABITS by James Clear
Have you ever thought about changing your life, your career, or your relationships? Most people do - myself included. We make plans, we set goals and we are pretty motivated (at least at the beginning). From “I want to become a book nerd, I want to land my dream job to I want to start my own business and many more...
The past years I couldn't help but wonder – why are we so motivated and enthusiastic at the beginning but lose that stimulus again after a few days or weeks? After reading this book I know WHY – plans and goals don't help us to reach our results, we need to focus on the right systems/habits to achieve our goals.
Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems are best for making progress.
Fix the inputs and the outputs will fix themselves.
Real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions – so-called Atomic Habits. In this eye-opening book, James Clear reveals exactly, how small changes in our everyday life will have a revolutionary effect on our career, our relationships, and our life.
Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you're willing to stick with them for years.
No matter your goals, this book offers a proven 4 point framework for improving–every day. In it, the author and one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical, self-improvement strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.
This book came highly recommended by many people I know and I have to admit: What a great recommendation! I just love it! I enjoyed the accessible, informal tone of the book. I think every single one of you can relate to many of the great examples (how to quit smoking, how to break your Netflix Binge-Watching habit, how to write your first book ...) in it. While and after I read the book I could not ignore the feeling that everything made so much sense and his approach to change life/career/relationships or "to get things done" sounded so much easier and more fulfilling. This book will be relevant to anyone looking for a step-by-step system for improvement, whether your goals center on health, money, productivity, relationships, or all of the above.
As long as human behaviour is involved, this book will be your guide.
